“Global warming is no longer a philosophical threat, no longer a future threat, no longer a threat at all.  It’s our reality”
Bill McKibben

Polar bear 4Global warming – Is it really a myth or an absolute reality? Is it part of the natural climatic cycle or a panic situation created by scientists, climate experts, industrialists and meteorologists; aided and abetted by self-serving politicians?

This increasingly important issue has been debated for decades – with many conflicting opinions being aired globally, especially by those with a vested interest in delaying any action to address it.  But whichever camp you have a foot in, there is no doubt the Arctic ice cap IS receding, and if we don’t do something about it soon, we WILL lose the terrifyingly beautiful polar bears forever.  Sixty to one hundred years is the predicted time left for these spectacular animals, and the world will be a lesser place…

  1. I have never seen a polar bear outside a zoo. My first experience in the Mexico City zoo was such that I could only feel bad for them, wrong climate and the pen was a sad imitation of the real ice and snow setting. In Orlando at SeaWorld I though the bears have such an AMAZING place, but after watching the BLACK FISH documentary on CNN, I am shocked by what they have done to the whales and cannot help but question how other animals are treated. Sorry I have missed the posts of late, I love them and learn so much. In April 2015 you should join the
    #AtoZchallenge and your theme can be an endangered species each day in Alphabetical order… This year we are already in R and linked to over 2,000 Bloggers world wide.

    • Hi Catalina. How nice to hear from you. I haven’t seen Black Fish, but Sea World seems to be experiencing a lot of problems at the moment. I’m afraid my opinion is it should be closed down. I’m glad the polar bears sound safe though, and you are so lucky to have seen one. But Mexico City sounds a bit challenging when it comes to keeping Arctic animals – LOL.
      I would love to join your A – Z Challenge. I would not be able to write separate posts, though. These take days and days of research and formatting. Would I be able to re-use what I have? Because I would be really happy to participate. Thank you so much for thinking of me. Take care for now, my friend. ~ Amelia
